    Hey, I currently ride a dude’s traditional camber board (149), it’s aggressive . I’m looking for something a bit more playful that’s good for stomping big hits & easy to spin, can charge fast without chatter on hard-packed, good for bit of pipe, a bit of rails. Too much to ask for in one board? Is the rocker on this one too much?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    This is the board for you!
    The EC2 will feel more playful and fun than a men’s camber board, making it a great option for jibbing
    But we put some really nice wood into the core as well as some nice fibers to absorb vibration and add pop, so it will feel solid on big landings and at high speeds.
    The Smart ASS Pickle Tech (asymmetry) will make deep carves and spins feel a lot more natural and intuitive.

    It’s truly a quiver killer…I’ve been riding it since its release a few years ago, and I was honestly blown away by how well it performs…it’s really fun and forgiving, while still being aggressive and powerful. I’ve never ridden anything like it, and I would HIGHLY recommend it.

  • vani

    Hi ,
    i have a question are the gnu B real snowboard bindings 100 % compatible with the ladies choice ??

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Yes, they’re 100% compatible!

  • vani

    Thanks :)

  • Michelle Schlanger

    Hi, i am surfer from Brazil, doing Snowboard, and making film from brazil, it was possible to send me a direct contact for discounts and talkin about

  • BB

    can i ride this board goofy? left leg back?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi BB,
    Yes you can!
    This board is a true twin and the nose is the exact same has the tail–it just has a designated heel edge, which has more sidecut, a more pronounced Magne-Traction and a softer flex.

  • BB

    awesome thanks! also- this board can be used for all mountain riding? not just in the park?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Absolutely, it dominates the entire mountain with ease!
    It’s got our EC2 base contour, which means Banana (reverse camber) between the binding inserts with a mellow elliptical camber underfoot. The Banana is awesome for floating through powder and catch-free fun in the park. While the camber will add a lot of pop and stability.

    It’s pretty much the perfect blend of it’s playful and fun, yet still powerful and aggressive!

  • Iveta

    Hi, can you in short explain me, how is the difference between B-pro and Ladies choice? I’m used to ride agressive in high speed. Which from these two, can you recomend me for that riding style? Thanks

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Iveta,
    The B-Pro is wider, stiffer, camber dominant and completely symmetrical.
    It will feel powerful, aggressive and unforgiving.

    The Ladies Choice has Banana (reverse camber) between the binding inserts with a mild, elliptical camber underfoot.
    It has Smart ASS Pickle Tech which means a deeper sidecut, more pronounced Magne-Traction, and a softer flex on the heelside.
    It will feel fun forgiving and playful–yet still aggressive enough to take anywhere.

  • troy miller

    hi gnu, the mens park boards are too big for me. i only weigh 110pounds. my boot size is 11. i need a small board for park so is it possible for me to use this ladies choice board if im a guy?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Troy,
    Check out the Gnu Space Case or Smart Pickle, or the Lib Tech Box Scratcher–these are all men’s boards available in small sizes!
    And they’ll perform beautifully in the park!

    The Ladies Choice will be too narrow for a men’s size 9 boot and you’ll get toe drag.

  • troy miller

    ohhh i see. thank you so much! i’ll deffinately look into those boards

  • Christine

    Hey there, considering this board as my 3rd owned. Goofy rider, started with a Burton Feather -> K2 Lunatique. I weigh 65kg, and 169cm tall. I love fun all mountain (not much pow) and want to keep progressing in park. Would this be the board for me? I’ve got a size 8 boot. Thanks!

  • mel

    I like all this has to offer, but I like to ride switch sometimes… this board isn’t completely twin is it?

  • Taly

    Hey, I’m only 5″2 and weigh 51kg…. will the 145 board be too much? Im only an intermediate rider. Please make a smaller one!!

  • JenniferMarie718

    I’m 5’7″, 145 lbs. Size 8 boot…what size board should I get?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    151.5 will probably be the most versatile size for you–though you could go up if you intend on riding more powder or just want to go suuuuper fast, and you could size down for a more jib-friendly board

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Christine,
    Yes this sounds like the perfect board for you to progress on!
    The 148.5 will be really awesome for riding in the park, but it will still be big and stable enough to take anywhere on the mountain!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Taly, I think you could ride the 145.5 without any issues! But I agree, in the future it might be nice to offer the Ladies Choice in a smaller size.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    100% twin, just mount your bindings with the heels facing the designated heel edge (there is an arrow indicating which is which)

  • Jamie

    I am 5’7 and 155 pounds. I do ride more powder/mountain than park so should I go for the 153.5? Thank you!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Yeah the 153.5 sounds perfect!

  • vani

    Hi
    What bindings would you recommend me to this snowboard
    :)

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Vani,
    The Gnu B-Free binding would pair up really nicely with the board!
    But I’d also recommend going in to your local snowboard shop with your boots and seeing what fits well with them and what is easiest to get off and on.

  • vani

    Thanks :)

  • Henry

    Hello,
    Looking at the Ladies choice for the Mrs. She is an intermediate who rides a bit of everything, but loves powder. She’s 5’9″ 140 with a size 8 boot. 151.5 or 153.5?

  • Tracy

    Hello,

    I am an advanced rider and I ride the entire mountain, but prefer to spend most of my time doing moguls. First, I am wondering if the Magne-Traction Technology will make the board more likely to catch edges on the side of moguls, thus making riding moguls more difficult. Second, I am wondering which of all the GNU Ladies boards best suits a mogul-rider? And third, I am wondering if I currently ride a 147, what size should I get? (I generally prefer a bit shorter in order to make moguls easier, but I worry that 145.5 is too short…)

    Thank You!!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Henry!
    The 151.5 will feel more versatile and excel everywhere–it’ll be small enough to maneuver through tight places, jib-friendly, stable at high speeds and big enough to float through powder.
    The 153.5 might feel a bit more cumbersome, but it will be incredible in the powder and extra stable!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Tracy,
    I think I spoke with you on the phone yesterday, I think you’ll love the 148.5.
    But you could also check out the B-Pro 149 for a more aggressive ride.

  • mya

    do u have this board anywhere in canada or the USA in a 145.5cm

  • Em

    Hey wondering if you can help. Im an intermediate rider, love the mountain and park but spend most of my time in park on jumps vs. rails. Im wondering if this would be a good fit. Im currently riding the burton feather and desperately want to step up. Also, im 115 lbs, 5,5… not too sure what size would work.

    Thanks for the help!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hello!
    I think you’ll probably be the most happy with the 148.5–it will be small enough to jib with and spin/twirl around on jumps, yet still stable and big enough to ride on the entire mountain.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Mya,
    We’re all sold out, but you may be able to find one at your local shop or with an online retailer.
    It is late in the season and this is one of our best selling women’s models, so it might be a tough one to locate…but we also make this board in a Gold Edition, and you might have an easier time finding that one.

  • Catt

    HI Gnu! I have been riding a b-nice board (153) for many many years. I am looking for a new board. I am looking for something fun and easy to ride I demoed a ladies choice on whistler last weekend in a 148.5 and it was a ton of fun. I am wondering if it is what you would recommend and what size would be good. I am 5’8″ size 9 boot and 170-180lbs. Should I go for the 153.5 or do you think i need a bigger size?
